Geology and the Biblical Flood

by Chris Ashcraft M.S., M.Ed., MTMS

Description:

The Grand CanyonSecular geologists say there has been no global flood as described in the Bible, but vast layers of rocks provide a monumental testimony to this event and God's recent judgment of humankind.

This presentation provides an introduction to Creation Geology and a characterization of the geological column that is naturally derived from the Biblical worldview. Several important examples are provided that show how strata and canyons can form rapidly rather than over millions of years. In addition, the secular geologic worldviews that form the foundation for interpreting the Earth's crust are examined to illustrate how historical bias against catastrophism has caused erroneous interpretations of geologic features that are now known to have been formed catastrophically.

Topics Include:

  • Catastrophism vs. Uniformitarianism
  • Bias Against Catastrophism
  • Channeled Scablands
  • The Geological Column
  • Sedimentary Rocks
  • Strata

About the Teacher:

Chris AshcraftChris Ashcraft is a Christian educator employed as high school science teacher at Cedar Park Christian Schools, and Adjunct Professor at Northwest University. Chris has also worked in plant biotechnology. He was a research technician at the Cotton Fiber Production Laboratory at Texas Tech University, then at the Plant Transformation Facility at Oklahoma State University, and lastly was the Plant Transformation Specialist for EDEN Bioscience in Bothell Washington ..

He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from Wayland Baptist University in 1989, a Master of Science in biology from Texas Tech University in 1996, a Master of Education from the University of Washington in 2008, and a Master is Teaching Math and Science from Seattle Pacific University in 2012.

Chris moved from research science into the teaching profession to serve God in Christian education. His decision was motivated by the impact that secular science is having on people of faith. Today, close to 50% of Christian students lose their belief in God while attending secular schools. This tendency could be lessened if the Church was better equipped to defend the authority of Biblical teachings (1 Peter 3:15). To be prepared for these challenges, it is important that Churches provide regular educational programs on creation and other Bible apologetics.
